I really enjoyed this book, the tittle I do agree does not seem to fit with what happens in the book but it was entertaining to me, I liked the two main caricatures even though most would think it very unreal for a story I found it nice to escape for five hours while doing house chores,it kept my attention and that to me says allot, I hope that you enjoy this love story and that you can escape while doing laundry like I have,
I really liked how spirited the woman was in this book , full of energy and spit fire witch i liked to see not some girl swooning over a good looking man with money but the chase of the romance that was quite fun to. Hope that you enjoy this one.

I don't understand why its called the secret child when the child was never a secret. A very boring book with little plot and even less of a point. The woman works in a club and the hero gets the hots so he chases after her. Eventually he gets her into his bed and they have a normal relationship eventually breaking up when she discovers he lied by omission. Yawn.
This is a Harlequin romance novel. It's a cheesy romance novel that is all about the relationship. If you like those kind of books, you'll like this one, it's one of the better ones. If you don't like 'em, don't buy the book or write a review that says it's "all about a normal [yawn] relationship." Yeah, it is. And if you like THOSE kind of books, you'll enjoy this one. She's a normal girl with spunk who meets a dream guy. He also happens to be loaded with cash. She gets knocked up (hence the title) and, like all good Harlequin novel's, the author delivers a happy ending. Pure cheesy romance. I love it!
I use books, reading or listening, as my major form of entertainment so I read Drama, Suspense, Comedy, Fantasy/Scifi and Romance. Just finished David Baldacci and Stephen King so this was a nice change of pace. I've read better and I've read worse.
I am not sure if it's the reader's tone or the dialogue she was given, but I just don't see how two people so hostile to each other would pursue a relationship with each other. It just didn't make sense at all.
And that's got nothing to do with the title fitting the story that well, or that it's a cheesy romance. I kinda expect that from a Presents.
Throughout the book I waited for the hostility between the main characters to subside. They remained angry even before and after sex. I could not connect with either of them because they were so cold and emotionless toward one another. The sex scene was glossed over, short, and not well developed. The sex is my favorite part of the love story. But this small blip of a sex scene seemed to just be a proverbial bump in an already tenuous relationship. Honestly I think that the sex scene would have been skipped completely if the story had not needed the cause/effect in order to result in a pregnancy. Endearing qualities and true emotional attachments are necessary and preferable ingredients in a romance. This had neither. The narrator was fine and her British accent was believable, but the poor woman only had the opportunity to use her hostile acting abilities. Maybe I am just an ignorant American that does not understand British relationships, but if all people in England are this unhappy and confrontational, it is a wonder they have not died out by now. The other books are worth the combination price so this purchase was not a complete loss. I will be deleting this frustrating little story. Not worth the time it took to download.
Very cheesy. I finished it with difficulty. If you are not into the syropy, Barbara Cartland type of romance, you will not like this book.
